I confess...I was a bad ass child.

Hallo meine Lieben,

I hope you are all enjoying your Sunday.
I thought my confessions today should have a theme...and because I don't have much else to confess at the moment I decided to do a little time travel and tell you some things about my childhood.

I would say I was almost as bad-ass as this pretty cool lion here. I was fearless and lawless, my life as a six-year old could not have been more dangerous. See for yourself.

Number 1.

I was a thief.

A pretty cold blooded one. I went to the hair dresser with my Mom. I had to wait. I got bored. I read a magazine. I found a cool iron-on picture in the magazine and decided that I would love to have a t-shirt with this bad ass kitty cat on it. Fearless as I was I got the picture out of the magazine with my sweaty hands and put it in my coat. I felt so adventurous. 
When we got home I got so scared and felt so guilty that I started to cry and told my Mom everything. She laughed at me but let me bring it back the next day. They let me keep it. 

Number 2.

I was a rowdy.

When I was in Grundschule (German elementary school) my friend Susi and I beat up the school bully together because he was always mean to a friend of us. Needless to say, we won. 

Number 3.

I was dirty.

One of my best friends in Grundschule had a huge mud hole behind his house. We spent every afternoon in there. Every time my Dad picked me up from there he had to wrap me in a blanket because I was too dirty to be transported in the car without protection. 

Number 4.

I was wounded. 

I don't know how I did that but I always succeeded in hurting myself. I often came back home bleeding from several wounds. But I can proudly say that I never had a broken bone. A concussion, yes. But no broken bone. 

Number 5.

I was fearless but not heartless. 

I always loved animals and my parents and I offered our home to lots of homeless animals in need. I rescued a cat from an abusive guy in our town, a bird from the street. Animals rock.

Do you have something to confess? Happy Sunday!


  1. Dang, they breed 'em badass in Germany apparently!! :D Good for you for always sticking up for animals. Your parents raised you right!! When I was a kid we caught some wild baby bunnies and took them back to the woods so they wouldn't get run over in the neighborhood. But I cried when we let them go because I wanted a pet so badly!! :)

    1. Haha, yeah, it seems so! :)
      Animals have always been important to me. And will always be. I rescued animals together with my parents when I was a child. We always had some animals in need at home. :)
      I totally understand your feelings! I would have cried too! But awesome that you rescued them!

  2. Haha. This is great! I feel as though my six year old self would have been terrified of your six year old self. ;-)

    1. Haha, I was a pretty nice kid! :) Glad you like it though!

  3. Sounds like a great childhood to me! I grew up in Saudi Arabia so I was always off in the desert finding lizards and scorpions and hiding in caves. Surprisingly though I was still a girly girl.

    1. I know I said that before but I think it is so fascinating that you grew up in Saudi Arabia! And I love the lizard and scorpion story! Haven't you been scared at all? :) I mean, lizards okay but scorpions can be poisonous!

  4. You were rad back then as you are now! ;D And you must have been the sweetest looking thief, haha! I stole a couple of things at a grocery store once and felt terribly guilty afterwards ... I don't remember ever telling my mom, though :/.

    Have a wonderful week, sweet Katrin! And thank you so much for entering my giveaway! :D Btw, the prize is a sticker and a pin, too.

    Tight hugs!

    1. I can imagine how guilty you felt! I think all in all I was a pretty nice kid. Haha.

      Your giveaway is so awesome, Miki! I would loooove to win! Thanks again for doing this! Have a great week! Hugs!

  5. I can picture you as one of the Norman Rockwell kids. at the moment, I'm picturing the one with the girl and a blackeye, very cute!

    honestly, I don't remember much of my childhood but I wish I could have been a little adventurous like you.

    have a great day.

    1. I love this comparison, Lissa! You are so sweet!
      Thank you so much!
      Have a lovely day!

  6. Love the thief-story, cause that's exactly what I love about you - that you're being so honest :) And for your love for animals, too.
    Your Grundschule-story is priceless!
    The biggest confession I have to make is that I didn't make it to not eat any chocolate till Easter which I was actually trying to do the past weeks. But who can blame me really for not making it? ;)

    Ich drücke dich gaaanz fest liebste Katrin. Ich hoffe, Du hattest ein tolles Wochenende.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words, Beate! You are so sweet!
      Haha, you make me laugh so much! I can never resist any candy, so I totally understand!
      Ich drueck Dich! Lass es Dir gutgehen, Liebes!

  7. I love this! You were badass! :D

  8. You are as cool and as that badass lion! :)

  9. I love that y'all beat up the school bully!

  10. You were a thief?! Someone should've tossed you in the slammer for jacking that magazine page, haha.

    Truth is, I still take magazines from the doctors office :/

    1. Haha, okay. Now you made me feel better. :)
